have been more pointed if he turned to paul ryan and said that line directly to him. do you think he was sending a message across the bell? >> i hope he's sending a message. a lot of progressives look at that and say wait a second, is that the same president who was willing to support the change in social security, or is he going to stand firm. the rhetoric sounds good but how does the president act? what are the offers in negotiation on the table coming. >> john: george, we have 30 second before a break but mr. obama managed to slap down the comment that 47% of the country is made of a moochers? >> i think did he. he wants to remind people what this election was really about which was 30,000 feet up was about the romney view of takers, and the view of the strong social safety net. he doesn't want to get up and say romney said silly things about binders full of women. he wanted to drive home what the message of the election was really about. >> cenk: david shuster, i thank you for your time and brilliance this evening. and mr. zornick applies stay with us. current tv presents the

song written about you in that regard. >> glory days. >> hal: by the way in shocking news -- paul ryan hated obama's speech. he accused the president of using a strawman argument. >> the president is a proud and competent liberal progressive. he invoked the constitution of the declaration at times which are something that everybody likes to hear, especially conservatives. but he invoked them as a means to sort of legitimize the agenda he has going forward which was you know, fairly partisan. very ideology for sure. and you know, it doesn't surprise me he did that because he's basically saying i'm a govern and i'm going to govern as a liberal and i won. >> exactly. your point is? >> he ran as a liberal. he won as a liberal. >> liberals wouldn't say he ran as a liberal. they wouldn't say that at all. >> nor would they say the speech was overtly liberal. there are two people involved in a communication exchange. the person speaking and the person listening and both play a part in the conversation. and it should some as no surprise that paul ryan hears what he wants to hear. and his former would

illegal without any exceptions lookin' at you paul ryan. no surprise then that when asked if they would like the supreme court to completely overturn roe v. wade, majorities in three polls say no way. less than a quarter want roe overturned in the nbc "wall street journal" poll. 70% say no. less than a third in a recent pew poll want roe removed. 63% say no. the most recent gallup show show similar numbers with 18% saying they have no opinion on the issue. thanks for participating in democracy, guys. but the good news, ruth bader ginsburg can finally pick out the retirement villa. while the national numbers show abortion rights with solid support, conservative state governments are moving the other way. according to the guttmacher institute which follows the trends 19 states last year passed a total of 43 provisions aimed at restricts access to abortion including laws that impose mandatory unnecessary ultrasound procedures on women seeking abortions including the invasive transvaginal procedure. laws providing abortion providers make fetal heart beats audible prior to procedures.

women's health and the assault on women's rights it's also app the federal level. paul ryan is back in congress and sponsored another fetus personhood bill. this even after his latest attempt died in the house in 2011 and an oklahoma supreme court struck down a similar initiative in 2012. oklahoma that bahsian of liberalism. the court there called that bill clearly underconstitutional, because it blocks a woman's legal right to have an abortion. joining me now from washington is nancy keenan, the president of naral pro-choice america. nancy, especially now so glad to have you back inside "the war room." >> great to see you, and thanks for having me. >> jennifer: you bet as ever. let me start with the policy stuff. what are you most concerned about federal or state laws at the moment restricting rights? >> it's both. the u.s. house of rent is full of anti-choice politicians that are hell bent on denying women's rights. so the battle is at all fronts and i think the most critical to all of this is we have to make sure that we elect and defeat anti-choice politicians and elect pro choi

politics and the central theme of the campaign. remember how paul ryan and mitt romney talked about the takers? well the president addressed that. >> obama: we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives any one of us at any time may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid, and social security, these things do not sap our initiative they strengthen us. [applause] they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> cenk: see, that right there is the moment of the speech. because if you listen to it, it sounds great. if he follows through and protects medicare, social security and medicaid fantastic. that's why he won the election, and he's repeating it again. but look at the reaction. in the middle of that speech he's negotiating with the republicans on possibly reducing medicare medicaid and possibly reducing social security. i'll judge him by his actions not on his words, even though they were great today. final

fan of your work in talking about paul ryan's budget, and thank you for speaking out about gun violence. talk to us about what you are doing now. >> what we have realized is that gun violence is a serious problem in our country. and what we have done is see the links of safety for our society, especially in low-income communities, when we heard that over 900 people have died by gun violence in the month since sandy hook, we realize this is a huge problem for our society, and is undermining our constitution. so we said we have to step up. we have got a lot on our plate, but this is one issue we need to speak up about so we're doing it. >> stephanie: absolutely. and sister it is interesting -- i don't know which statistic sounds worse, but i think one of the parents at sandy hook were saying that 85% of the children that were killed in the world are killed here. >> oh, my glory, i hadn't heard that one. oh, my glory. >> stephanie: yes. >> i did get to be at the president's unveiling of this program, and when he spoke of the one child grace whose picture he keeps in his private st

republican votes on tax hikes. what happened to this once, you know, rock-solid g.o.p. caucus even paul ryan voted with the president on that their bluff has been called on the debt ceiling. we don't want to shut down the government. so, it looks like republicans are fighting among themselves. so this debate is already underway in the republican party. >> yeah. the. >> the president understands this. that combined with the 332 electoral votes he got, i think he is in a stronger -- i think he is in a stronger position now than he has been probably in four years. so he has less incentive now to be mr. nice than he has in quite some time. i think we are seeing that. >> right. i was going to say, i think we see that he senses that as well. >> yeah. >> he feels that he is projecting it. i don't know whether -- i forget whether you were there the day he announced his measures on gun violence for example. >> yeah. >> that was straight o here is what we are going to do. whereas before on so many issues, they might say, you and i both heard robert gibbs and jay carney say we can't push for that

with this problem in my opinion. jezebel.com brings us paul ryan once again sponsors a bill that would make it possible for rapists sue their victims. once again being an idiot with his moral stuck in all the wrong holes. he has signed on as a cosponsor to the sanctity of human life act again, that zygote can have bank accounts and everything. now it's back which is scary because not only is the above terrifying there is also some creeping [ censor bleep ] hidden in this monster. if a woman went to a stay that didn't ban abortion his rapist could theoretically sue and could win. i wonder if ryan's career would go the way of the dodo bird. one would hope so.

-- this was a direct challenge to people like paul ryan and john boehner and mitch mcconnell. he said yeah, you guys want to sit around, you know, and look at your navals and have this on-going debate about what the role of government and he said that's not -- we can have that little debate but that's no substitute for action. >> obama: progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time. but it does require us to act in our time. >> bill: that's it. that was it. that's what that -- address yesterday, i started to call a sermon really was. was all about. the president says that is our role. that's what we believe. if we really believe in the constitution, then he went on, we'll talk more about this. we've got to do something. about poverty. we have to do something about the disadvantaged. we have to do something about seniors and social security and medicare and medicaid. we've got to do something about gay rights. the first time any president's ever mentioned that. he came out and said if we really believe in that constitution, we sh
